Poetry: Undiminished illumination


Undiminished illumination

Linger in the presence of its warmth.
Capture the radiance of its glow.
Reflect the brightness of its brilliance.

To linger is to sit for a spell
To capture is to truly be held
To reflect is to image back your shine

Undiminished illumination

Chronic pain...undiminished


Undiminished. So very undiminished.


It's cosmically impossible for my humanity or your humanity to be diminished. Our intrinsic worth is totally secure in the bosom of Love. He shepherds our identity, and He makes sure that our worth holds its value no matter what, unquestionably. Selah!
